1856 - Early Members of the Lambda Chapter
Search this Collection
No other Phi Gam chapter of this age has such a complete photographic record of its early undergraduates. The location of the originals is unknown; most of the following images were copies made for a chapter scrapbook. Some appeared in a 1956 The Phi Gamma Delta article and subsequently disappeared. Except where noted, the images are of undergraduate brothers. Many wear a badge on the center of their shirts, or sometimes after the Civil War, on necktie knots. Note the use of chains, now prohibited.
